Lester Young            The President             mono       Norgran 1005   deep groove yellow label

Lester Young (ts), Oscar Peterson, John Lewis (p), Barney Kessel (g), Ray Brown, Joe Shulman (b),  JC Heard, Bill Clark (d) Rec. 1950-1952

The record looks VG++ and plays mostly VG++ with some VG+ during quiet passages.  Norgran Lps play with light surface noise and usually below visual grade.  The music plays strong without distortion, repetitive ticking or intrusive noise.  There's a few light scuffs on each side that are not into the grooves and do not affect play. Also, in strong light, some minor superficial paper scuffing is visible that does not affect play. Grooves are very bright and glossy and look unplayed or nearly so.     

 The cover is VG++. The front cover looks nice with some shine and light wear. The back cover has light to moderate wear and some ring wear.  No split seams but some wear on the seams.  Small spots of wear and denting at the corners.  Spine has some wear.

 Black lines that might be visible at bottom left and top right in pictures are due to photo cropping and not on record.

 My highest grade is M- and I rarely grade 50s or 60s records M-. Records are graded visually using the Goldmine system. M-, VG++, VG+, VG, VG- etc. I play grade any potential problem areas.  I attempt to grade conservatively, listing all significant flaws. You will be satisfied.  No hassles.
